Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery is pleased to announce that we are now offering one of the latest breakthroughs in facial aesthetics – The Profound RF Microneedling device.
About Profound RF Microneedling
Profound Microneedling RF technology offers several advantages. It is safe for all skin types and is the only FDA-approved device of its kind. Profound is a non-surgical procedure performed in the office that provides skin tightening as well as skin rejuvenation and smoothing. It can be used as a non-invasive, non-surgical facelift alternative or as a means to lessen acne scarring and wrinkles.
There is minimal downtime. Jane Iredale-Mineral make up may be worn 24 hours post procedure, and all other make up can be worn 48 hours post procedure. Normal activities and physical activity may be resumed within 48 hours post procedure. Moderate to mild swelling can occur, but resolution should be expected within a week.
Benefits of Profound RF Microneedling
Profound has a unique ability to re-create the building blocks of youthful skin. As discussed many times before, hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin are depleted through the years of aging, thus leaving the skin droopy. Profound has been shown to reverse all three of these trends in one treatment setting.
The Profound Difference
The Profound radiofrequency device is different in the fact that the temperature of the skin can be controlled as the radiofrequency energy is applied. By treating at the optimal temperature, there is maximal tissue regeneration and new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid formation. The microneedles used are inserted to the perfect depth to minimize scarring and hyperpigmentation/hypopigmentation of the skin surface.
Unlike lasers and other high energy facial/skin treatment devices, this treatment can be used on any skin type.
For years, treating wrinkles and acne scarring in darker skin pigments has been a challenge because lasers and other devices can cause changes in pigmentation and permanent skin damage. Profound RF Microneedling allows us to safely treat all skin types in a strong enough fashion to improve even the most challenging acne scarring with minimal risks of pigment issues, even in African American skin.
